Forget concussions. The real risk of CTE comes from repeated hits to the head, study shows

Thank you Kitt O’Malley (kittomalley.com) for tweeting this.

This is horrifying, any hits to the head can cause chronic traumatic encephalopathy or CTE. The hits don’t have to cause concussions, any hits to the head can cause damage which may or may not be evident immediately.

Football coaches of young kids who play football should read this article as well as NFL players, coaches, and officials. These debilitating, often invisible at first, and sometimes deadly injuries really need to be checked. A sport should not cause the death of its players. 😢😢
